On Monday I wore a pajama top to work- it's just a long t-shirt, it was comfortable, and my work is just answering the phones and data entry so no one cares what I wear. I don't have a full-length mirror, so I did a little gouache sketch as a warm-up to convince myself it was okay (I work swing shift, so my drawing gets done in the mornings). Then I did the same Tuesday...and so on.
Learned two things from this exercise. 1) Warming up before inking is important, and 2) My look is dependent on cardigans.
I'll be sharing a table with the lovely Nomi Kane, and we're putting together a split mini comic just for the show.
Unfortunately I'm going to have to miss TCAF this year, couldn't afford the plane tickets and the time off of work. But you should stop by the Quatro Monstro table and check out comics by Laura Terry, Katherine Roy and Jon Chad! And of course, don't miss the Koyama Press table. They might have some copies of Island Brat left!
I will make it to the CAKE in June, though. Looking forward to seeing Chicago again, and having a hot dog and a Green River.
And...that's it for this spring. Wow. I'd better make up for it this fall!
Hey look, it's a comic! We haven't seen one of those in months.
I decided to start regular updates here again, there will be comics every Monday-Friday. Not new comics, but they might be new to you.
Recently I read this article on comics for kids, which refers to zines as "code for 'not available anywhere'", which got me thinking about how many zines and anthologies I've drawn comics for, where only like 100 copies were printed, most of which were given away to the contributors, and that was it. It's...a lot of pages.
There'll be comics from Caboose, Trees and Hills...other stuff that's been out of print so long I can't find a working website. Hope you enjoy!
